About the Club

Whether you are visiting the Club as a Member, planning your wedding or other event here, or enjoying a stay in one of the overnight rooms, you are sure to find the Nob Hill locale, with the cable cars stopping right out front, an amazing place to be.

The Member owned Club is a gathering place for those who enjoy fine food, wine, music and engaging conversation in a comfortable and casual, yet elegant, setting. The panoramic views of San Francisco's iconic skyline in the background are only some of the highlights of the Club.

In addition to the excellent cuisine and find wines, you will be able to partake in other amenities the Club has to offer, including a comprehensive squash program in the Club's modern Athletic Facility, yoga and indoor golf. Banquet facilities and meeting rooms of every size are available for your personal or business functions.

The Club also contains overnight accommodations fitted out with antiques as well as modern amenities. Although The University Club is a private Club, we welcome guests to experience our hospitality.
